Carrie,

Just wanted to say that you have such a great TR, and even though that was expected because of your book and your podcast and all of your helpful comments, it still was better than expected!

What a lovely trip and story and amazing details. I thoroughly enjoyed the read!

Yes, but what we ALL want to know is when to expect a vow renewal TR??? I'll even start passing the jar around to collect funds if it means another lurkyloo TR!!

If we're talking DFTW, you're gonna need a BIIIIIG jar! Actually, if you listen very carefully to my next podcast you may hear a clue...

(and I'll stop chit-chatting now as I don't want your TR to get shut down for going too . Wait, do they still do that? )

Carrie,

I must say over the past few days I have been glued to my phone reading through all 63 pages of your TR. I have loved it all. You are
high-larious!!! I am looking forward to reading your other TRs especially the 2 HR in one day. Although I don't have a ring yet I was interested in getting your book but I have a question. Would I be better getting the online version so I can get updates? Also do you have any updates for weddings at Aulani? I did listen to your podcast and I hope you get a chance to do another one. Since you are such a planning guru, I may have tons of questions for you after I get my ring.

Oh my goodness, so after my fifth time reading your entire trip report (to get me excited about my wedding and also just because it makes me happy to read it ), I finally watched your entire wedding video. I am not a typically emotional person, but I did shed a tear with the photo's of your Mom. Your parents looked so happy on their wedding day and, not to get all Weepy Wendy, it's amazing how fast life goes by.

Oh my gosh—bless you for reading all that on a PHONE! You might prefer to read the rest of my reports on my website, which cuts down on the scrolling-through-comments aspect: http://disneytravelbabble.com/trip-reports/

I do recommend the PDF version of my book for exactly the reason you mentioned: free updates. That way, you'll always have the most current info. I have a pretty decent store of info about Aulani, I just haven't added it to the book yet, so if you have any questions, PM me your email and hopefully I'll be able to answer them.

Thanks for the kind words! I think about that a lot, mostly (I hope) in a positive direction that keeps me appreciative of every minute I get to spend with Patrick.

I'm so excited about your wedding! Are you doing a planning journal or a blog anywhere?

Truly!

I do! My DIS Discovery Cove PJ. I haven't updated it in a week or so, though. I'm working on my invitations now so hopefully I can post those soon.

transportation for guests question

Hi Carrie,

It's me, Diane, from the pm earlier. I am reading through your PJ and see your invitations say "guests transported" etc. How did you transport everyone to and from different resort locations?

Thanks,

Hi!

We had a motorcoach that picked everyone up. This post in my planning journal gives a ton of detail on how that worked: http://disneytravelbabble.com/disney...ransportation/

The Roots recommend www.mpix.com for printing their photos - it's a site used by pro photographers for prints, books, etc. but the print prices are cheaper than the prices I've seen on most photogs' websites (like 19-29 cents for a 4x6!). I think I'll be making my prints through Mpix... I'll keep you posted on the quality.
Good tip

Oooh, in case I forgot to post how the MPIX prints turned out, I really liked them. In fact, to save money on framing, we painted our hall wall with magnetic paint, and then printed a bazillion wedding photos in different sizes through MPIX and put them up using rare-earth magnets. It's fun cuz now we can hang other art there and change it up whenever we want!
